Ill-fitting tights: A fashion faux pas too far
It is important that women know what size hosiery they should be wearing in order to smooth out any unnecessary bulges, an expert has commented.

Kelly Reising, a blogger writing for LifeTips explained that good quality tights should "accentuate the positive" but that pulling on hosiery which is too small can leave a lady looking lumpy.

However, purchasing tights which are too big can give legs an odd and baggy look as they sag in all the wrong places, she continued.

Woman, Ms Reising urged, "know thyself".

"The chart on the back of the package is there for a reason. Read it - use it - learn it," the style adviser recommended, warning that wearing the wrong-sized tights is a fashion faux pas.

For women who want to take on board such advice, SockShop offers a size guide to help ensure all ladies wear tights which fit well.
